The seasons are changing and soon the Monarch butterflies will begin flying south to warmer climates. Like birds, these unique butterflies migrate twice a year and journey over 2,000 miles between the United States and Mexico. In honor of this amazing species, littleBits brings your butterfly and geography lessons to life across a STEAM continuum by combining science, electronics, engineering, art, and geography. Encourage your students to think like entomologists and get tracking!
Our littleBits STEAM Monarch Project is divided into three activities: 1. Butterfly tagging, 2. Butterfly migration patterns, and 3. Butterfly migration mapping.
